The loan document was signed on February 15 by Eric Trump, who along with his brother, Donald Trump Jr., has been running the Trump Organization on a day-to-day basis since their father became president in 2017.
Financial terms of the loan were not disclosed.
Eric Trump told CNN in a statement that “Trump Tower is one of the most iconic properties in the world and sits on arguably the most prestigious corner in all of New York. We have incredibly low debt, have a tremendous amount of cash and have an extremely profitable company. We had no problem refinancing.”
A spokesman for Axos Bank declined to comment.
The refinancing by Axos Bank, whose president has donated to Trump’s political campaigns, comes as the Trump Organization is under a cloud of scrutiny and questions have swirled about the state of the business.
The loan was signed days after New York investigators made public a letter from Mazars USA, the former President’s longtime accounting firm, stating that the Trump Organization and its lenders should no longer rely on 10 years of financial statements. The Trump Organization has retained another accounting firm.
The previous mortgage was provided by Ladder Capital, which has loaned the Trump Organization millions of dollars over the years, according to financial disclosures made public when Trump was president. Weisselberg’s son Jack Weisselberg is an executive at Ladder Capital.
The Trump Organization’s new lender is led by Gregory Garrabrants, who donated nearly $10,000 to campaigns associated with Trump since 2020.
